White Chocolate Easter Bunnies will satisfy any sweet tooth and add festive flair to your Easter party or brunch!
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- ¼ cup unsalted butter-melted
- 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 2 cups sifted powdered sugar
- 10-12 oz. white chocolate, candy melts or almond bark
- Pink candy melts (or you can us pink/red food coloring and leftover of white candy melts to make the bunny ears and nose, and for paws)
- Mini marshmallows-for tails
- Black decorating gel-for eyes
- Stir together melted butter, peanut butter, salt, vanilla and brown sugar until the sugar dissolves.
- Gradually add sifted powdered sugar and mix until everything is evenly combined. The mixture will look crumbly but should holds together and looks smooth when you squeeze it with your hands. If it’s too sticky add more powdered sugar. if it’s too dry you can add a tablespoon of milk and mix again.
- Line a tray with parchment paper and set aside.
- Take about 1 heaping tablespoons of the mixture, squeeze it and roll with your hands to make the egg shape. Place the eggs on parchment paper lined tray. Place the tray in the fridge for 2 hours or until the eggs are firm completely (or freeze for 20-30 minutes).
- Melt white chocolate, candy melts or almond bark according to package directions.
- Using a fork dip each egg in white chocolate to cover completely. Gently tap the fork to drip of the excess of chocolate. Place chocolate covered hearts on the parchment paper lined tray.
- Squeeze mini marshmallows to make them look like small balls and stick at the wider sides of egg to make the tail.
- When the chocolate has set melt pink candy melts, transfer in a zip lock bag, cut of the corner and make the bunny’s ears and nose. Make small dots with black decorating gel for eyes. (You can use melted dark chocolate and a toothpick instead of gel).
- To make the bunny paws, using melted pink candy melts make one large circle at narrow side of an egg and three small circles at the wider sides. Let it sit until firm completely.
I made about 15 eggs from this recipe.
